Each day, I receive hundreds of Mail Delivery System/Postmaster/Administrator emails which appear to be from spoof email addresses. In the "To" section of these emails, the address after the @ is the same as mine.
I run McAfee several times a day, and all it picks up (regularly) is potentially unwanted cookies and removes them. Different ones then appear! They are found under c-drive, Documents and Settings, Personal Folder Name, Cookies. If I delete them, new ones appear - usually after visiting a website. In the Cookies folder, they are stored as text documents and seem to have an email address attached to them associated with whatever website I have visited.
I'm a bit of a duffer at computers, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
This problem happens from time to time. Someone has got hold of the last part of your e-mail address and is probably sending spam from a false server. Either that or someone with your address has got a virus.
It will die down and disappear eventually. It took 6 months for me but for my wife only 1 week.
In the meantime keep running malware and anti-virus checks.
just ONE program may miss something another program finds; which is why it is a good practice to have several items in your armoury BUT only ONE av program installed ;try those above and see what they find perhaps?
